Crosses

 This first cross is Mary Konior's Large Cross in size 10 Celery HDT from Yarnplayer.  I love this green most of all(but, my favorite color is blue).    :)
It's for another lady in our Sunday night group.  It had to be large because she is legally blind.
I have this feeling I may be tatting a cross a week till all have one.  
The first cross, which I didn't get a picture of was from the book Tatted Bookmarks Needle & Shuttle edited by Barbara Foster Handy Hands, Inc. The Heritage Cross is by Dee Powell.
And here are some more.  The one that I didn't get a picture of was the same as the red below, but I added blue with the red when tatting the chains-which made the chains thicker than the rest, but the lady who received it loved it since red and blue are her favorite colors.  :)
These ones are all size 40 Lizbeth threads.  The first two are Rainbow Taffy, and the red is Christmas Red.
One of the Rainbow Taffy crosses is going to a niece of ours who we haven't seen in a very long time and I think she is getting married.  Wow!  I remember her as an 8yr. old.  :)

Your Large Cross is truly beautiful ! One sees many of these patterns repeatedly, yet Each one has an individuality of its own due to choice of colors, etc. :-)
It is such a nice gesture - tatting & gifting a cros a week ; the giver & reciepient are both happy !

If I have more notice, and things work out I will definitely be there cuz' my hubby wants to get away too(but not to join us-which is a blessing-smiles)!!! :)
